Overall good app, needs zoom/scrolling for images I enjoy the app but it would be nice to be able to zoom in or out on an image and scroll up and down as the images gets cut off when displayed on the screen.

Problem Setting preferences seems pointless at the moment: notification of new photo doesn't seem to work & neither does the automatic update function. A shame.
